M.I.A.

MIA for about six months. I know no one is heart-broken over it! LOL A lot of changes have transpired in that time. I’ve moved — in with my love and my kids in a new town. I’d love to say that everything has merged together seamlessly, but that just isn’t the case. It’s taking a lot of adjustments and tolerance. I think I’ve mentioned that I mother two teenage girls

One morning everything can appear to be perfect and by mid-morning coffee the table has been turned and you’re starting all over again. There’s no way to tell from one moment to the next what’s going to be coming at you … most of the time. It
